Letter — Skate-a-thon helped animals

Justin Brown of Tahoe Valley Elementary School skated 188 full laps to win one of two grand prizes at the Cold Nose, Warm Heart Skate-a-thon Benefit for the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and S.P.C.A. Sponsored awarded Justin a Sierra-at-Tahoe ski pass, a South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena hockey jersey and a $25 certificate from Cutting Edge Sports. Other raffle and prize sponsors included Tahoe Bowl, Great Outdoor Clothing Company and Tahoe Spirit Coffee Cafe. Tahoe Manor sponsored the event T-shirts. John and Jan Chamberlain won the grand prize for most money raised.

On behalf of Tahoe’s orphan animals, we extend thanks to the others who skated their hearts out — many in tails and whiskers — and to the volunteers who registered participants and counted laps. The first-time benefit event was a success with 28 skaters and $1,363 net funds raised to benefit local animals in need.
